Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
Radius Networks, Inc., the leading provider of mobile proximity services, today announced the release of its iBeacon Locate mobile app for Bluetooth Low Energy capable mobile devices running Android 4.3 or higher.
“The release of iOS 7 makes it possible to develop some pretty cool proximity-aware apps for iPhone and iPad devices. Along with our recently released iBeacon Development Kits and our Android iBeacon SDK, we are now making available the iBeacon Locate app as an easy to use tool for discovering, monitoring and testing iBeacons, ” said David Young, Chief Engineer at Radius Networks.
iBeacons are short range, Bluetooth Low Energy transmitters that can notify mobile devices when they come within 100 feet of the beacon. This micro-location proximity awareness can be leveraged to deliver a wide range of new innovative solutions, such as precision indoor navigation, automatic ticketing, guided museum tours and location-relevant offers and promotions.
“The iBeacon Locate mobile app for Android is the latest example of the tools and services we provide that enable our partners to deliver proximity-aware solutions for both Apple iOS and Google Android mobile devices,” added Marc Wallace, CEO of Radius Networks. “It’s a powerful tool, and it’s really going to accelerate our partners' efforts to develop, test and field iBeacon-based proximity solutions.”
